Smart Move, Village Roadshow

Via Village Roadshow's Twitter feed came this delightful piece of news:

The Hurt Locker - Now releasing theatrically on 4th February 2010

As you may recall, The Hurt Locker had been pulled from it's late October release date and had been slated for Direct-to-DVD. Perhaps somebody within their system realised that the film will be in the thick of awards season soon enough and will surely be cited for some Academy Award nominations so the February release makes sense in that regards. It's still so disappointing that Australia has to wait eight months for one of the most critically acclaimed films of the year.

Did you get a chance to see it at MIFF?

Thanks for the good news, Glenn. I did, Joel; it was my third favourite film at MIFF 2009.
